Well, it was supposed to be Saenchai/Liam Harrison III, but be that as it may, at least there’s a decent card still on.
England & Ireland are still represented, with Stephen Meleady set to take on Rungravee, Daniel McGowan (whom Richy Green requested me to include a highlight to hype the youngster up) will face Insee Sirinthip, and Kamen Picken coming up against Saengathit Sasiprapa.
Saenchai will fight for the vacant WPMF 140lbs world title, against Harrison’s replacement, South African Umar Semeta. Expect the current Lumpinee Stadium lightweight king to ease out a wide decision win over his durable foe.
Watch the card at 9:30pm Bangkok time – I cannot embed, nor do I endorse piracy, but all I will say is, google “watch Thai TV streamed” and choose the Channel 3 option when you get a good site. It may or may not have thaitv in the url!
Here is the promised McGowan hype – but it would be rude to exclude Saenchai from this. He’s the p4p best Muay Thai fighter in the world since the 1980′s… possibly ever. Enjoy.
I’m personally off to Bangla Stadium (Patong, Phuket) so I’ve not got a scooby doo if I’ll be able to catch this card or not, but it should be pretty damn cool.
Keep an eye out for the wizard man adding WPMF gold to his Lumpinee title. 2012 comeback tour; the days slumming at Sinbi sparring with Phuket tourists and losing twice to the inferior Sagetdao are long gone – he’s already taken Sagetdao’s belt, whipped Penek, and he’s back on the up and up…
Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream.
